Meatless Recipe - Grilled Bourbon Tuna Steaks

Mahalo Layla! We call tuna "ahi" here in Hawaii. It is fresh tuna, usually the yellowfin tuna.

"This tuna recipe has a mixture of flavors that really compliment each other. It's spicy, yet sweet, and pugeant as well. Enjoy with you favorite grilled vegetables or with rice".
6 tuna steaks, about 1 inch
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons bourbon
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
2 teaspoons lime juice
2 cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon chili sauce
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients, except tuna, in a small bowl. Preheat grill for medium high heat. Baste tuna steaks well with sauce, place on grill and allow to cook for 5 minutes. Turn steaks, baste again, and continue to cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and serve
